The Dalek Movie Actors Interviewed on BBC RadioJune 21st, 2013
BBC Radio, as part of the released of the Blu-ray versions of the two Dalek films starring Peter Cushing asked Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD star, Bernard Cribbins, and Roberta Tovey, who played Susan in the film, to sit down for the first time in 47 years and discuss the appeal of the Daleks and the the production of the films. Also in the interview is writer and actor Mark Gatiss.
Both Cribbins and Tovey have some great stories to share about the filming of the movies Doctor Who and the Daleks and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD. Among the interesting tidbits we learn from this interview: Tovey earned a total of 21 shillings for making the film, Cribbins tells us that the Dalek operator spoke with an Australian accent, the Doctor was simply viewed as an ordinary scientist who happened to invent the TARDIS, and Tovey was shocked at the overwhelming success of the original film although the second did not do as well.
